On article Hands-on with new Sony FE 35mm F1.4 GM (223 comments in total)

Can someone explain why primes are becoming bigger and more expensive every day?

40 years ago they cost and measured 1/4th, now they are bigger than zooms...

I'll stick to an old 100$ 50 mm af 1.8 from Nikon, or Canon, or Pentax.
I can buy it new on ebay, with autofocus, true manual focus, diaphragm, auto exposure.
And it's even sharper in the corners (and I bet in the center too).

Sure, it won't have that "distinctive look", but I guess I can survive without it.

Will wait the firmware update before deciding, I'm mostly interested in sport shooting and I bet that the D500 is still superior regarding AF performance.

T3: In the modern age of EVFs which displays tons of information, and rear LCDs that display tons of information, a space-hogging top-plate LCD seems quite redundant. Top-plate LCDs first made their appearance back in the 1980s, in an era where in-viewfinder information was limited, and rear LCDs did not exist. Plus, the tiny font of top-plate LCDs don't exactly make for enjoyable viewing for older eyes. But I'm guessing that Panasonic is catering these cameras towards old-school DSLR users, so they want to make the size, weight, feel, and design of these cameras as familiar as possible (ie, as DSLR-like as possible) for them.

Just take a look at Fuji Xt-3 Panasonic...

I don't understand why the ff lenses are becoming bigger and bigger.
A 50 mm f.1.4 was tiny and light now it's a huge chunk of metal and glass...

Actually I paid 12 euro for a pack of 4 AA Pros...
Will have a look to Ikea Ladda too.

JCoolowski: Depending on how loud the shutter, how bad rolling shutter and how good 120p is this looks interesting to me.
But Sony's trademark euro-tax is a major bummer. 2000€ would have been much nicer.

Even counting the taxes it's crazy.

But which lens for sports photography?

70/200 f4 too.

Aleks7: omg the size and weight, I was intrigued for a while but I'll stick to my Nikkor 50mm f1.2.
I wonder what's with this plastic looking design Zeiss started with their lenses and others seem to follow.

This lens insn't available for Nikkor mount, so of course you'll stick to your Nikkor...

On article Should you upgrade to a Nikon D850? (646 comments in total)

Sooner or later I'll buy this one or maybe the upcoming D760.
I miss a BIG viewfinder too much.
Let's hope that I won't miss the extra reach of the D7200 for sports.

lapomattiabarambaniviendalmare: f 2.4, manual focus, 1400$, vs f1.8, AF and around 500$.
Really don't know which one to choose...

I was talking about Nikon 85 1.8G, that is not an old lens.
And it costs around 500$.
Let's see how this faboulous Loxia will perform, but only above f 2.4, at 1.8 or f2 we won't be able to.
Manual focus with auto focus magnification?
I will take your word for it.
Still think that AF is a huge advantage and convience.
Unless you shoot macro.
PS: dear brendon, let's stick to Loxia lens, I know you love Zeiss, but nobody talked about the Milvus or Otus series.
This is LOXIA.
Not Milvus.
Not Otus.

This is a completely different lens, and I bet it won't outperform Nikon or Canon 85 1.8 in any aspect.
brendon1000 sarcasm is pointless.
Maybe you didn't notice but this one is called Loxia, not Otus.
Using manual focus in a modern DSLR without changing the focus screen is a pain in the a*ss.
Maybe a "different photographic strategy", but still a pita.

In reply to:

m_black: Nikon: "Announces 105 1.4, $2200 USD. Otus level sharpness".
Public: "Whaaaaat? So expensive! Crazy! Who is Nikon?"

Zeiss: "Announces facelift of existing lenses. Still no AF. $2200"
Public: "ooh! Can't wait! Sounds great! Me likey some Zeiss Miley Cyrus!"

Is Zeiss allergic to AF or is only a matter of technology, meaining that they aren't able to manifacture a Nikon or Canon lens with AF?
